Helen's Babies


Published March 22, 2008


LibriVox recording of Helen's Babies, by John Habberton. Read by Kara Shallenberg.

In this hilarious novel, Harry Burton, a bachelor white-goods salesman, goes to take care of his sister Helen's two little boys for ten days while she and her husband are out of town. Helen says, "The children won't give you the slightest trouble; they're the best children in the world!" but, as you can imagine, Toddie and Budge are always up to something, and all sorts of comic mischief ensues. It just so happens that there's a lovely young lady in the neighborhood whom Harry admires very much, but she always seems to be passing by when he's deep in some terrible mess of the boys' making... (Summary by Kara)

Anyone who thinks this is funny, has never had to take care of little spoiled brats like those in this story. After 40 minutes, I couldn't stand any more - hearing the idiot adults endlessly caving in to the brats. -- Some of the people who leave comments, make me suspicious. The reader was great, for sure, but the brats in the story, no way.

This story was so funny I caught myself laughing out loud in my car. The narration is excellent and she brought this story to life. Thank you so much!

This is a delightful, entertaining story that was light in nature. The reader, K. Shallenberg, was excellent, consistently able to mimic the different voices, particular the children's. She read with just the right amount of feeling and drama to keep you enthralled.
